New Zealand

This image was made on one of my trips to New Zealand a number of years ago.  We had just visited the set of the Hobbit and we drove down the road a ways and came across this beautiful brook.  The falls and water seemed to be coming right out of the woods.  I spent. a bit of time getting this shot right.  It now hangs in my living room as a metal print.

Tree

Tree NZI have been spending what little spare time I have organizing my photos from the last few years.  It’s a mammoth task and one I say I will stay on top of from now on.  Here’s to hoping I do.  This is an image I found shot 2 years ago in New Zealand.  This a tree that is photographed a lot.  I guess because it sits out in this filed and a small pond by itself.  Once again I saw it in B&W.

One of the most magical and photographic places I can think of is New Zealand.  I love NZ and it’s no wonder the Hobit is filmed here.  There are some of the coolest places anywhere to shoot pictures.  This one is one of my favorites.  It’s about an hours drive from Queenstown.

Lupens In The Spring

I love New Zealand.  If I won the lottery I’d probably run off to this amazing land.  I get to New Zealand about once a year. Usually in early December when it is their spring time.  all over the countryside are amazing wildflowers and especially Lupens.  You can stop by a river shore and spend hours shooting these beautiful flowers.  Today’s shot is of Lupens made on my last visit.

I have been re-working some of my images using the update Capture One software 7.. I basically take images I worked on previously and run them back through the processor and they now come out even better.  This is one of those images.  It was shot on an IQ180 in New Zealand last December.  I love the greens and details I was able to pull out of this shot.  This was magical location.

New Zealand Snow and Falls

This image was made in December 2012 showing one of my favorite places on the planet, Erarnslaw Burn, New Zealand.  Very hard area to reach so it’s not visited by many.  Very magical as there are hundreds of waterfalls pouring off glaciers thousands of feet in the air.  Just to be present there is an incredible feeling.
